This is my card for yesterday's Teapotter Tickle. Thanks for the "Farm" story and challenge, Sabrina! I have been absent from or late in making my TPT cards, as my sweet Mom has been in the hospital 5 x since May 2nd. As most of you know, she has had a "bad run" of medical problems since last fall. After life-saving surgery last Thurs. morning and a few days of ICU care, she is now home and at this time, doing as well as can be expected. Unfortunately this surgery and the two before it were d/t bad medical decisions. I have been so sad that she has had to suffer so much d/t a couple dr's bad judgements. I am just glad she is now home and I pray with all my heart, that she is truly on the road to recovery. I just know that she will feel better, soon. :) Your continued prayers are always appreciated.
I did enjoy making my card. I used Lisa Johnson's (MFT) wood plank border, LKR's chicken wire, Ali Edwards' (TT) sentiment, and SU's three tiny dots. I cut the farm animals and the two-layer sun from PTI dies.
THANKS for looking! :)

I love how you made this card, very creative. And I hope everything goes well for your mother. My mother passed away 3 yrs. ago this last April. Today was her birthday.She would of been 96 yrs. old. She lived a good life though. She had a stroke then a heart attack, So I'm glad she didn't have much suffering. I hope your mother will be on the road to recovering.

I'm sorry it's been such a tough month for your mum - and you - Gabby. I hope you're through the worst and out on the far side now, and as it says on your card, "moving forward".
I love the contrast between the wooden border and the chicken wire, and the different patterns and textures on your farm critters.

Love your little farm scene. All your critters are super special with their own paper piecing and eb'ing. Love that wood plank. Hope your mom is feeling better real soon. Sorry you both have had to go through so much. No fun. Glad you took a little time to make your fun card. Love it! TFS :0)

Well first and most importantly I hope your Mom is on the road to recovery. It is great to see you back, it's understandable that you have been MIA with all the health issues your Mom has had. You're back with a vengeance with this fabulous card. I love all the patterned animals and the board is fantastic.
